Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, but a big reason people like both Magus & Schala is their kick-ass themes! Two of the best in a game absolutely saturated with awesome themes.


AHHHHHH.


You see, I watched my brother played CT when I was very young so I don't remember the music ell, and then I wen't and played through the ROM without sound!


Oh well, Imma go play my rom on this PC (that has sound)

Good. You'll love the game even more than you ever thought possible. The OST rules.

Is Magus really all that cool?

He's not my #1, that spot is saved for a special someone (Crono).  However, Magus takes second in my eyes.  Instead of rushing to rescue the fair maiden, or time (as the case may be), Magus takes his time and broods over things.  He's a thinker, and as stated before, great at revenge.  Spending roughly half the game as the main villain, then turning around and becoming the anti-hero certainly brought a twist to my first runthrough.  He's magic-based yet strong physically, he (imo) hid his powers from the rest of Zeal, and has so many damn cool lines.

I picture him as a lead singer of a metal band.  The band consisting of Slash on guitar 1 (sounds familiar), Magus on guitar 2 and vocals, Flea on bass (hmm, sounds familiar too) and Ozzie on drums.  Thats what I picture when I listen to a certain song anyway.

1. Save all tabs.
2. Level all to **
3. Use tabs to fill un-**'d stats.
4. ??
5. Profit.

And this song you speak of...what is it?

When did this topic get pinned...and why??

Anyways...

He's magic-based yet strong physically

While his physicality is certainly looked over, I think it has a reason...I'm pretty sure he's only above Marle & Lucca in physical attacks...possibly Frog as well...The real middle-ground is Robo.

Y'know, I just can't imagine Magus...singing...at all...I could only imagine him as part of a punk band (either w/his old Mystic Crew or Crono & Co., I'm sure either would work)...but only on a mostly instrumental song...his only vocals would be him saying, "**** you." to the crowd...& possibly spraying them with some kind of Dark Mist death sauce.

Then forget my "Do-se-do with Magus and Friends" idea.

I Like all aspects of magus. I Like Janus, Magus, and the Prophet!

This Guy really has opened up the most room for development. I love the fact that he is shrouded in such darkness 

So Yeah in my opinion he is really that cool!

Even if it's the wrong pronunciation, I still pronounce it Ma-juss. Just Like I call Serge, Ser-dge (Not "Sir-Gay". That's just retarded.)
